Anyone else getting teams that do nothing or almost nothing before dying? is it just because it's the weekend and kids are online or what?

Had to imgur them instead of uploading, used 4,79MB of 4.88MB upload quota, anyone know how to fix it?

 

And yeah this is a whiny post, had to vent somewhere.

Usually this phenomenon is described as "weekend".

 

However sometimes, the ultra casual players boot up the game to play WoT - that is described as "x4/x5 weekend with a sticker mission".

Take solace in the fact that on weekends the teams are mostly equally as bad for both teams.

 

It IS weekend "special" after all. ;)

My games today have been
Wins : 15-11, 15-10, 15-9 & 8-11 (won by capping)
Losses : 10-15, 6-15

So apart from the lemming train on Swamp that left one flank open the teams I've played with / against have been fairly evenly matched

In short, "yes". 

 

Had a stream earlier today and someone commented, "oh, it's a x4 weekend, that explains it".

Yes, six games is a representative sample.

I don't see any difference on weekends compared to rest of the week. People say that because they just play more on weekends and have double the chance to have such games.

Those screen shots look like normal battles. 

See that so very often, even midweek.

Shame to admit, it sometime happens to me, getting killed before doing damage.

Was that a criticism of the post above yours? If so, does the 7 examples posted by the OP count as an acceptable sample?

 

 

Just had a battle where 4 tanks had 0 dmg on our team and 2 on the enemy had 0 dmg. On our side only one was afk, the other 3 contributed with spotting dmg. Still shows as 0 dmg on the result screen. So you cannot judge every 0 dmg player the same.

Special shoutout to the T30 in the first link, he wasn't afk in base, he was in the thick of it at the heavy area, no idea how he managed 0 damage.

Likely by being in the thick of it in the heavy area, and being shot and killed too fast to get a shot off. Battle is like that. The enemy shoots back and focus fire on specific targets.

Well my winrate has fallen from 50,1% to around 50.8% since the mm, all of my stats were improving up and steadily gong up until the new mm, now i think everything is in reverse. I'm playing in games were the team 3-0 down within a minute, quite often. Or 2-0, 3-1, somethings not right. And these are tier 6,7,8,9 games. During the clock countdown, I'm looking at the map, and i say to myself, " I will go to that position on the map"  by the time i get there, if not before, we are down a number of tanks, i haven't even fired a shot. Somethings changed, and i don't think its just the new mm. In the old mm i would very rarely lose more than 3 or 4 games in a row, now im struggling to win once in every 3 or 4 games.

He was alive for quite a while, I'll have to root through the replays and find out.

Naah. its just luck. 

On a side note, there seem to be way more 1-sided battles after 9-18.

Yeah I've noticed that too, usually when I play bad, we win and when I play well, we lose.

It's the [edited]patch, everything is always fucked beyond belief when they reset the server and add their [edited]"upgrades". Games with 16 shots point blank and only 3 hits, then a game where you don't even have to aim. WG devs are completely [edited]retarded.
